6:34 am
plays and everything else. it was late. it was a late slide where he hit ruben on the field, certainly was something that needs to be addressed. >> reporter: the mets released a statement and not surprisingly they support utley's suspension calling it the appropriate course of action. dodgers manager don mattingly says utley reached out to tejada to try to apologize. it should be a very loud citi field, and my hashtag hashtag go mets. we're live outside citi field,. >> that's a good hashtag i'd say. as soon as the decision comes down from the mlb about chase utley we will alert you on our news app and facebook and twitter. follow sports anchors rob powers and laura behnke for continuing coverage as the mets and dodgers series heads to new york tonight. now to a developing story on staten island.
